I remember doing a lot of shopping there when we lived at Elm Court, Laurie. Much nearer than the town and there was always Newfield Stores if they didn't have what we needed.

My Dad used to tell me stories about how he was in the road-building gang that laid all the original concrete road and paths.

Is this the same Goacher's who were in Lexden Road, Seaford, in the 60s? My wife Janette and I used to do all our grocery shopping there, while we lived in Pine Court, Upper Belgrave Road. Mr. and Mrs. Goacher were such a lovely couple who, when we were a bit hard up, as newly weds often were in those days, would let us have our shopping on "tick" during the week, which we would then pay for on Friday, when we got paid! We had our first taste of "Flora" in their shop! Sorry, I know this is not strictly about Newhaven, but nice memories.
